Instagramming the Capitol

Instagrammers in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol
Categories: 

On a rainy December Saturday a group of Instagrammers joined us at the U.S. Capitol to tour the building and chat with an Architect of the Capitol photographer during our first ever Instameet. Despite the weather it was a great event and we look forward to hosting more in the future!

Thanks to all who joined us and offered a unique perspective on the art and architecture of the U.S. Capitol through their photography. See all of their images on instagram at #capinstameet. Follow the AOC on Instagram at http://instagram.com/uscapitol.
